3. Music Pricing
In the initial stages of downloadable music, the pricing model for iTunes was to price songs individually. At the time, Spotify instead opted to offer unlimited song playing, for a monthly fee. Today, both services use a monthly subscription system. Discuss the two pricing mechanisms including their pros and cons. Your discussion should include which model would likely yield more profit and why; and, why iTunes changed its pricing strategy to what it is today. Please use and provide references.
